Produced by Omega Pistons in the UK specifically for Sitech Racing we have got together and speced and designed the best option for forging the ST180 Ecoboost.
Facts, standard engine has super light weight dia-cast slipper piston attached to special hardened DLC piston pin which in turn sits in a mega strong forged bush less con rod which is also lightweight. The nature of these components being so light means that the engine is happy to rev to 8000rpm with out putting excessive loads into the big end bearing and crank.
So what we have come up with is an even lighter ultralight forged slipper piston to run on the super hard DLC pin and standard forged rod. This set up is 5% lighter than standard but considerably stronger, been fully forged.
